Private Lessons

Private Lessons are there for students to refine their skills even further on a one to one basis. Small group training and specialist courses are also available.

In addition to the twice weekly classes run at Havant Wing Chun, Sifu Jim Woodcock also offers private training opportunities.

These sessions are delivered on a one-to-one basis (or small groups) and are specifically designed for individuals or small groips who want to fast-track their progress.

Private lessons are available 7 days a week but need to be arranged and paid for in advance. They can start from as early as 4pm and as late as 8pm and are generally conducted at my home or if it is a small group, at my class location at Havant Academy. If the circumstances are right I will also consider coming to your home to teach but this may have extra costs.

Before your first lesson it is essential for me to meet you to discuss your goals and together we will make a bespoke plan so that no time is wasted.

Private lessons have to be booked and paid for in advance and there will be a significant discount for block books (for example 4 lessons in advance would cost £100 instead of £140)

I can also teach groups of up to 10 people again at discounted rates.

Course subjects include:

  • An introduction to Ving Tsun

  • Self Defence Fundamentals

  • An introduction to the Siu Nim Tau form – The Sifu Cliff Au Yeung Way

  • An introduction to the Cham Kiu form – The Sifu Cliff Au Yeung Way

  • An introduction to the Wooden Dummy

  • Improve your punching power

  • Ving Tsun advanced course for someone who has (completed all of the above)

Please use the contact form if you need more information on these courses or find us on Facebook.


My Influences

Over the years I have trained with many martial artists, combatives and self defence experts. The person who has had most influence on me in regards to reality based combatives is Lee Morrison.  I attended his monthly workshops for around a year and a half, and also attended two of his "New Blood" seminars.  To say he is the best in the business is an understatement and someone that I encourage everyone to seek out and learn from.  He can be found at the following website -

Another massive influence on my concept of Self Defence is Sensei Iain Abernethy. Iain's philosophies and teachings via his website and podcasts have been instrumental in how my own classes have developed. Fortunately i got to meet and train with the man himself in 2019. Iain can be found at - and again I encourage you all to seek him out.

There are many others in the business who I have trained with but there simply isn't the space to name them all.

So if you would like to contact me to arrange a workshop or seminar, simply use the form below.
